    I have seen on alot of sites they have pop up windows, that are open by a link on a page ect. The window does not open a new window in the browers tho. It just pops up on top of the new one and the original index page is still there in the back round.

    Can any one attempt to explain how they do this ? i am assuming html, Javascript or php?

    Any info will be great

    What you're referring to is called an overlay or a modal window. The link that m3n0tu18 posted is a good one. You may also want to look at Fancybox (, jQuery Tools Overlay ( or Shadowbox.js (
